Dolphins are among the most beloved creatures on earth and we would like to offer you the opportunity to learn about how we train our friendly and playful bottlenose dolphins.
Our dolphin center is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to research and education on dolphins and other marine mammals and we always have the best interest of our animals in mind. We will not employ training strategies or offer forms of interaction that are harmful to our dolphins to maintain a fun and safe environment for both our animals and our visitors. During this program, we will make you an actual member of our training team and allow you to work alongside us both by the poolside and in the water. Help us feed the dolphins and assist trainers as they apply behavioral training techniques. You will be with our trainers at all times to witness every aspect of what the work of a dolphin trainer entails. If you want to know more about dolphins and get as close to them as you can, this is the opportunity of a lifetime.
The maximum group size for this program is 6 per day to make sure that you get the best-possible experience while you help us train and take care of our animals.
